Busy morning

Post by thebigscott on Thu Aug 12, 2010 9:33 am

I haven't even had breakfast and it's already been a productive day. I just dropped off one of my cats (Hermione) and one of my dogs (Cupcake) at the vets. Both of them are getting fixed. Our other dog is already spayed, but I still have more cats that aren't. I wish I could afford to get them all done at once. But it costs over $100 a cat and we have to get three other cats fixed. In the lifetime of the cat you'll save money, but in the short term it's freaking expensive.

They both had litters recently and Hermione had such a hard pregnancy. She lost weight and scratched herself until she bled in multiple places. I think it was allergies flaring up. Once the kittens were born she was OK but I can't risk her going through that again.

Now if I can just keep up my productive streak and clean the house we'll be set.

What are you guys doing today?

Dealing with a return - dress shoes I got for hubby. I ordered his regular size, but they were way too narrow. Come to find out, the box states Med width, which for men is normally a D, right? Inside the shoe it says it's a C width. GRRRRR!!!

Shopping for groceries, picking up a paint order (DH wants to try to paint a countertop), maybe doing some light organizing/packing for our trip next month.

And the biggest question is, will I be able to continue ignoring the quilt I should be working on for my sister? Or will I finally confront it? Rolling Eyes

Busy this morning trying to figure out since I homeschool, if I could be eligible to sign up with scholastic for book orders. I'm not quite sure yet, at one point there was a message saying the school could not be verified even though I had checked the homeschool box. Then I got an e-mail welcoming me. So I'm not sure if it went through or not. I requested some book order flyers, which are supposed to arrive in 7-9 days. What I plan on doing is ordering the good priced books from each flyer as I can afford to and put them away for presents and also put some away for a future grandchild. They do have a book order for older kids 7th grade and up, though I don't know yet until I get the flyer if it's anything JJ would read or not..probably not, we'll see. If I do get the flyers, I will find out with my first order whether or not they will let me order. I don't know why I shouldn't be able to, as far as the state of maine is considered I am my son's teacher, and teachers are eligible for the book order program from scholastic...

I can't wait until I have a grandchild to read to someday... I might even make a gift of a book or two to SIL's kids. However SIL Rani, does not read to her kids, and I don't ever see them reading, they are always plopped in front of the TV, or playing their Nintendo DS's (even the 4 yr old plays a DS all the time). They should be reading or be read to, but since I know that they aren't and don't, I wonder if it's assholian to buy them books.

My other SIL Sunny does read to her son Ethan, he isn't old enough to read on his own yet, but he LOVES being read to...so I know he would be thrilled to get some books.

It's hubby's birthday today so I got up early and picked up some bagels before he left for work this AM. Grabbed the kids and my camera and went to the bird sanctuary about half an hour from here. I didn't get any great bird shots, but did get some ok shots of a derelict barn and silos and abandoned farm machinery.
I was hoping to catch the meteor shower tonight, but I think it's going to be too cloudy here.

I got up, called Stanley steamer and had them come do my couch/loveseat...they did a good job, it is almost dry and so far doesn't smell oddly.
Went to the Credit union, and tomorrow I have to go school clothes shopping. I hate school colothes shopping more than i think I would hate having my fingernails ripped off with pliers.

I was lazy today, cleaned and did laundry. Spent the rest of the day reading, and relaxing.

I have a friend that works at the Scholastic warehouse. She gives us some really cool books and craft projects.

I'm hoping that since I am considered my son's teacher, and I have to follow the Dept of Educations guidelines, etc, that I will be able to order through them.

Karen, good for you for doing your part in keeping the animal population down...it's expensive, but can make a different in animals that might get live as opposed to those who get put down because no one wants them!

I didn't get much else done today. Picked up the pets from the vet and then mostly sat around feeling yucky. But I'm still considering it a productive day since getting my babies fixed has been something I've been meaning to do for a long time.
